It's awards season and what better way to celebrate the best performances and greatest films of the year than with a post dedicated specifically to all things movie (and wedding!) related! Not only is a movie-themed wedding a great way to engage guests and personalize your big day, but it helps keep the planning fun and on point. Between a DIY popcorn bar, mini Oscar trophies and centrepieces dedicated to the greats (think Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn or Marlon Brando) we promise it'll be an award-winning evening!

Trend Alert: Gorgeous Bridal Veils PDF Print
Thursday, 22 January 2015 20:27

Like many steadfast wedding traditions, the idea of the bridal veil has origins that date back as far as the Roman Empire. Over the years, the veil has symbolized many things: from warding off evil spirits (like the Romans believed) to demonstrating a sense of humility and respect before God (which is still practiced in many religious ceremonies today), to acting as a status symbol for the Victorians (the longer and heavier the veil, the more affluent the bride). 

Today, however, many brides choose a veil based solely on style. A modern bride may choose to walk down the aisle in a chic bird-cage veil, while a more elegant, traditional bride may opt for a more modest one in lace. Below, we've created a style guide of the prettiest and trendiest veils around to help you decide which style is best for you! See below:
 
           alt
                                                                                                                                                 Etsy | Bridal Guide
 
If you're planning to say your "I dos" in a traditional church or religious ceremony, you may want to opt for an elegant veil that covers your face as you walk down the aisle. Most styles are far from the frumpy, old-fashioned veils our grandmothers wore, like these two pictured above! A short veil looks modern and edgy while gorgeous lace embellishments on a longer style (right) makes this veil look anything but out of date.

Many brides choose to don a veil for their ceremony and for some photos, but remove it once their reception or cocktail hour begins.  If you're choosing a veil strictly for its aesthetic beauty, we suggest going big and bold! A gorgeous floor-length veil (left) is jaw-droppingly stunning, while a delicate lacy one (right) is perfectly elegant.

Short, trendy veils are super chic and pretty. Whether you choose one that covers your face, or one that simply acts as an accessory to your bridal hairstyle, you really can't go wrong with a birdcage veil! The best part? Both of the veils we've featured are insanely affordable!

Floral crowns, sparkly headbands and pretty barrettes can transform any veil into something extraordinary. Planning a whimsical fete? A floral crown will work perfectly to hold your veil in place! Incorporate a stunning headband or a clip covered in baby's breathe to instantly elevate your bridal style. 
 
Don't forget to take advantage of your stunning veil and get some amazing photos:

DIY Clay Flower Pot Centrepiece + Favour Idea PDF Print
Tuesday, 20 January 2015 19:50
 
If you're trying to plan a wedding on a budget, this DIY tutorial is for you. It's no secret that the best, most affordable wedding details are the ones that perform a double-duty, like these beautiful centrepiece/favour clay flower pots. Not only are they personalized and unique, but they're also the perfect way to decorate your reception tables (for a fraction of the cost that a high-end florist would charge)! Looking for a money-saving favour idea? Let guests know that the flower pots are theres to take home at the end of the night! Trust me, your friends and loved ones will be super impressed.
 
See below for our tutorial:
 
alt alt
 

What you’ll need:

· Acrylic or outdoor paint

· Temporary adhesive stencils (I used Martha Stewart Crafts Paint Stencils)

· Clay pot

· Paint brush

· Ribbon or twine

alt alt alt

 

Start by choosing your stencils and adhering them to the clay pot. Next, begin painting (remember: less is more! If there's too much paint on the brush, the paint could leak under the stencil and smudge). Gently remove stencils while the paint is still wet. 

alt alt alt

 

Once the paint is dry, fill the pot with potting soil. Get creative with the types of flowers you fill the pot with! I went for cactus-looking buds but any sort of flower will do. If you're strictly using these pots for favours, try planting some lavender, basil or mint seeds! Guests will love watching their potted herbs grow!

                                          alt

 

Try different colours or designs and don't be afraid to mix and match! Add ribbon or twine so each pot is unique and personalized.

Five Photo Booth Alternatives PDF Print
Wednesday, 14 January 2015 19:11

Planning a wedding that incorporates new and innovative details can be a daunting task! Most wedding trends spread through the bridal world like a raging forest fire, and tend to fizzle out just as quickly. Take the photo booth, for example. What began as a super fun and unique way to capture real moments, quickly escalated to include things like props, backgrounds and quirky filters that are fun, but repetitive if you're a guest at more than a few weddings per year. So, what's the best way to stay on trend while still making sure guests are wowed by new ideas and details? Try your best to keep things personal and unique to you, the couple. In the case of the infamous photo booth, we've come up with five alternatives that are fun, original and far from overdone. Check it out:

1. Disposable Cameras:

                              alt

                                                                                                                        Delightfully Tacky

Why not let your guests do all the hard work? Place disposable cameras on reception tables and get your guests to take snap shots of the night! Once you've received the prints back, make an album so you'll always be able to remember your wedding from your guests' point of view.

2. Caricaturist

                               alt

                                                                                                                              Hello May

Put a spin on traditional wedding photography by hiring a talented caricaturist! Set up a caricature booth and get guests to sit and get their portraits done! Struggling to come up with a favour idea? Gift guests with pretty frames that their caricature portraits will fit into!

3. Wedit

                                            alt

Hiring a videographer can be extremely expensive. Thankfully, Wedit has come up with a brilliant, affordable solution! For a cool $500, Wedit will send you five HD cameras in the mail so you and your guests can capture every moment of your day. Once the wedding is done, send the cameras back to Wedit and they'll give you a digital copy of all the footage and host it on their website for one year! 

4. Polaroid Guest Book

                 alt

                                                                                                                          Style Me Pretty | Emmaline Bride

How cool is this polaroid guest book idea? Selfies are all the rage right now, so why not indulge your guests' vanity by getting them to snap photos of themselves and writing a quick note in your guest book? Looking back, you'll be thankful you've got the photos and notes to help remember your big day!

5. Instagram

                                                                alt

                                                                                                                                 The Knot

Let's face it: your guests are going to Instagram photos of your big day whether you ask them to or not! So, then, why not set up a personalized hashtag and get guests to reference it when they upload photos. Have a big projector screen set up at your reception with a live feed of your hashtag updates so guests can see who's Instagramming what!
